Hi! My name is Eli Gurvitch. Not to be confused with the other Food Project intern who posted on this bog, Eli Shanks. He's the one who bakes bread and plays harmonica. I'm the one who has an online radio show and plays guitar. I'm 17 from Jamaica Plain and I started working at The Food Project in 2010.
I have learned many things at The Food Project. I've worked on farmland; led workshops on the food system, food justice and social justice; and interacted with community members at the farmers' market and different TFP events. I have also met and learned how to work with lots of great people, both youth and adults, and formed awesome friendships.
